Levels of the Game

John McPhee

23

Prior to and during the Olympic Games, vehicle access will be restricted in Paris, so orders may take longer than usual to process.

Levels of the Game is John McPhee's astonishing account of a tennis match played by Arthur Ashe against Clark Graebner at Forest Hills in 1968.

It begins with the ball rising into the air for the initial serve and ends with the final point. McPhee provides a brilliant, stroke-by-stroke description while examining the backgrounds and attitudes which have molded the players' games.
